Music: Breathe Me (Sia Cover)

Haven't done this in a a while, but gave myself a 1-hour challenge to record a cover tune. This time, I chose Sia's "Breathe Me". I'm no Sia, vocally, so I ended up sounding like Feargal Sharkey and Howard Jones' love child! :) Kept it minimal, musically. The song is a powerful song... needs little embellishments.

Music: Calm Amid the Chaos

This one was recorded 20 years ago in a freezing cold studio, not 2 blocks from where I work now. I can remember trying to play with gloves, scarf and hat on... there weren't no heat!

Music: Puppy Funk

Not quite sure what this is, but I dig it. Started the pieces this past weekend and then riffed on it a bit this evening.

Music: Bassically

A first run with the new Moog Minitaur. 4 audio tracks, no MIDI (and sloppy playing). I just recorded a track, tweaked the sound and went for another. Very stream of consciousness. Some observations: The low end is VERY nice (duh). There is an upper range limit to the oscillators, which is pretty low. Makes sense for a bass synth. If you tune oscillator 2 up an octave from osc 1 and play in the upper octave, oscillator 2 stops at it's upper limit allowing it to drone a single note, no matter where you play in that octave. Seemed like something was wrong at first, then I understood what was happening. You can hear the effect in the middle range repeating riff above. While there's no noise generator, you can crank the LFO all the way up and get a "nearly noise" effect (heard in the "drum" sounds above) I expected this to sound exactly like the Moog Little Phatty. Not so. The filter has a more growly sound. I dig it.

Music: Inside, Looking Out (sketch)

After 41 years of being inside, looking out, I'm finally having a look around inside. While it's very organized, the functionality is all wrong. Water flows through the electrical circuits and power, through the plumbing. This piece is my mood after just a week of this rearranging. Incidentally, I started and finished this little piece on my new Korg Kronos workstation. The only time it hit the computer was to upload to Soundcloud. The Kronos is pretty bloody fab and it's very nice to create music, once again, away from a computer screen.

Music: Breathe (naked mix)

I wrote this song after the awful day a few students went on a shooting spree in Columbine, Colorado in April of 1999.

Music: Multiply - HL Mix (originally by Stephanie's Id)

My remix of the lovely song, Multiply by Stephanie's Id. This is the first remix I truly struggled with! I have such huge respect for Stephanie and her original version. I was trying very hard to create something that sounded like SID... then I realized, there's little point in a remix if it sounds like the original. So I started from scratch and tried to focus on the lyrics. There is a darkness there that wrestles to break out and shine. This bears very little resemblance to the original... but (hopefully) a good illustration of the lyrics.

Music: Sleep, Interrupted

Music: Cinematronic

I've been thoroughly enjoying Daft Punk's TRON Legacy soundtrack and wanted to try an experiment in a similar style. I'm just using a very basic composition here. 4 repeating chords with various riffs inside of that structure. It's all in the arrangement. The cold electronics playing off the filmic strings and cymbal swells seem to be the key here.

Music: The Imaginary Importance of Moving Quickly

This was my Saturday afternoon. With so much going on lately, I was reminded of the value in stopping and smelling the roses (http://goo.gl/4WWuP). Creating little pieces of music like this is my version of an open road, a mountain hike or a fabulous meal with dear friends... this is my bliss. I could have spent hours getting the mix perfect and obsessing over sound placement. That would really miss the point of the endeavor, though... would it not? Live life.

Music: Do You Ever Wonder?

Laying on your back, staring up at the stars. A distant aircraft makes it's way across your view, recalling the journey that would change you life forever. Do you ever wonder?

Music: Oblong Stroll (another GarageBand/iPad on the bus tune)

Another morning iPad Garageband composition on the bus. About 45 mins bus time using only Garageband on the iPad (shrewd observers will notice the punny title as it is "reminiscent" of another tune by another artist)

Music: Supermoon Morning (iPad Garageband Test #1)

Garageband on the iPad is very impressive. It seems more musical than many of the other composition apps I've tried on the iPad. After an hour of playing around with it, I'd spent the time actually noodling with musical ideas rather than figuring out how to use it. This little piece was wholy created on the iPad and then exported via email. Lack of sharing by anything other than email is really the biggest drawback of Garageband on the iPad, I'd say. Great stuff.
